  • Commented on Roll the dice
    Was reading this yesterday btw; https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/30/us-buys-up-world-stock-of-key-covid-19-drug So if trump's bought all of the avaliable doses of remdesivir for now what happens once a vaccine becomes avaliable? Will trump claim it all and what for the rest of us? x.x ljones...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Hope I am not derailing things here but coming right back to the original post of this thread ("Cough Cough") I found this intresting piece about demonic cummings; https://consortiumnews.com/2020/06/08/letter-from-london-what-made-dominic-cummings-dash-to-durham/ Did bozo manage to sweep all of this under the carpet?...

    >I see nobody else on the Conservative government front bench. Anyone who doesn't support their mission has been relegated to the back benches already, or de-selected Don't want to blow my own trumpet here but I pretty much figured this...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Hope this isn't too off-topic or anything. But it makes intresting reading: https://www.opendemocracy.net/en/oureconomy/neoliberalism-is-over-welcome-to-the-era-of-neo-illiberalism/ Prehaps the flaming dumpster is illibrealism? ljones...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    re:(274) I'd add one more thing - the NHS. Assuming the NHS dosen't collapse there is one thing I'm waiting to happen after covid19 is over and that is bozo telling us all a) how wonderful his govt has handled...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    So unless bozo is going to do the dirties on everyone and just try to ram through is WA in the next week, its an election. Although just like brexit it seems to be all to play for. I keep...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Um....in the meantime back to brexit. (!) Since the EU is waiting for parliament to make up its mind and parliament is now essentially in check-mate mode (both sides blame each other so nothing is moving) have the odds just...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Ah, the madness of brexit! Just what will future historians make of it all? Just some brief thoughts here though - my £1's worth (post brexit value -- about 0.00001p)..... Isn't it intresting how the ERG tories have changed their...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The way I see it - bozo wants no deal. Remember that brexit has long since stopped being a policy and has ended up now as a cult. And to win a general election bozo needs all those brexit party...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    So looking at the brexit options now I guess we're down to: 1) Revoke A50 2) HoC indicative vote 3) Short extension from EU, but with strict conditions 4) Long extension from EU 5) Long extension from EU but the...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    I see may is now apparently going back to the EU early to try to convince the EU over her short extension plan. Snag is she still has nothing at all as a plan B. In the words of another...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    (In reply to post 64) Pretty much I agree I think there's going to be a hard brexit on the 12th. I still think what I said in the previous post is going to happen -- namely that may and...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Not sure if I'm right here but I still think may is secretly now wanting crash-out/no deal brexit. The reason why? I'll note how at least some of the so-called "anger" from the ERG almost seems fake. I mean if...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    >Close to despair ... What happens next? - May tries to bring her dreadful deal back for a fourth time. Heads banging against walls all round. Ugh x.x :-( - General election - Softer brexit with a customs union -...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Random thought -- what if there actually isn't a majority for *anything* in parliament? I mean literally every option dosen't have enough support. What then? I guess parliament just BSOD'd x.x ! ljones...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Maybe may won't prorogue parliament? In the commons today there wasn't any mention of a hard brexit (and might it be off the table) plus unless I'm going mad didn't may herself say "international law takes presidence over UK law"...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well the commons has just had their "indicative vote" and it got through - 329 to 302. But isn't it really completely meaningless? This vote is apparently only to do with the political declaration (not much more than a set...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well as of 2.25pm the remoke A50 broke 5 million (it is now on 5,003,751 signatures). Add to that the million or so who took part in the march and that's quite a sizable number of people. Annoyingly though the...
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    >This leads to ... interesting ... political implications. If the SNP were to encourage the brexiter contingent in Westminster they'd lose votes back home, but the most likely short-term path to the SNP's long-term goal (independence) is for Brexit to...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    I hope I'm not going off topic here and I apologise if I am! But since the vote in the HoC is still a little while away what does everyone here think will happen -- will it be stay in...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Tiny bit of news -- in the back of my mind I seem to remember trump saying if the UK gets a trade deal with the EU there'll be no trade deal with the US. Prehaps I was correct? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46352463...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    An intresting piece on brexit: https://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2018/11/brexit-more-thrashing-about.html ljones...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    >What can you come up with? How to fix brexit? The short answer? You can't. It was broken and impossible from day one - and there's no point in even trying. Brexit was stillborn - no point in trying to...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Re: 457/Moz >One interesting thing I read the other day is that in the UK one reason they can't find citizens for fruit picking etc is that the unemployment benefits are structured to prevent it... Not sure if the unemployment...

    Reply to : Pidgeon (64) >Apart from the bits about copyright law (on whose likelihood I am entirely unequipped to comment), nearly all of that gives me a strange feeling that you are posting from an alternate universe where things...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Replying to comment from Pigeon (41): Pretty much, and I've found this problem as well -- most people don't seem to have a clue as to what is going on and it is being made worse by almost everyone deciding...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Second round projection: 65.5% macron, 34.5% le pen If that holds up once all the votes are counted I wonder how that bears out for may and the EU? ljones...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Ok, so here we go! Apologies for ressurecting a slightly old thread but the french presidental elections are underway -the count - though turnout is said to be down to 65.3% . The BBC are saying we'll have a better...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Ok this is an odd newsline: France elections: Le Pen 'steps aside' as party leader http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-39696861 Surely dosen't make sense? ljones...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Hope this isn't going to take this thread too far OT, but the first part of the french elections is underway; the polls have now closed. Emmanuel Macron(23%); Marine Le pen(23%); Francois Fillon (19%); Jean-luc melenchon (19%); Benoit hamon (7%)....
